About Sue Nelson

I first fell in love with Croatia on a sailing holiday in 2004. The crystal clear waters of the Adriatic are undeniably welcoming as are the people. I returned the following year with the idea of finding a retreat to which I could escape when UK weather or general stress became too much to handle. I now like to share the experience with others and find that they too inevitably have a memorable and enjoyable stay. We also share the wonderful location of our house in the UK which we have had the good fortune to occupy for over 25 years and which lies beside the River Blackwater. A self contained annexe with it's own garden onto the river provides a perfect hideaway for two for either short stays or temporary accommodation for visiting relatives or between house sale and purchase.

Sue Nelson purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Sue Nelson chose Tribunj

On walking into 19 Podvrh which looked nothing like it does today I had a heart stopping moment when the view was revealed through a torn curtain at a tiny front window. A year or two of not completely stress free negotiations with owner, lawyer, accountant, architect and builder finally provided the result you see now and I am eternally grateful to the little voice who first gave me the idea and then the courage and determination to win through!

Many of the restaurants stay open all year round and are frequented by local people in the Winter months who are always welcoming and friendly.

What makes this apartment unique

I have tried to make 19 Podvrh a home from home with books, CDs and games as well as a comprehensively stocked kitchen. Many of the guests also contribute by sharing their own music or literature. My property is also lovely in the Winter months with its cosy underfloor heating. I particularly enjoy the changing weather views and magnificent sunsets from the balcony in all seasons. The village is busy and buzzing in the Summer season but quiet and serene in the months outside. All the centres of Zadar, Sibenik and Split are on hand for sightseeing and facilities not available in the smaller villages. The National Parks of Kornati and Krka are well worth a visit too. In 2010 we added a motor boat for hire by our guests per day, half day or week. Please ask.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sept.2014 - We have come to feel very much at home in the apartment and Daniel took good care of us as usual - Lewis; Aug.2014 - You really are incredibly efficient. I was singing the praises of our wonderful summer in Slovenia and then your lovely apartment to my colleagues today (many of whom had chosen wet camping in the Lake District or Wales, enough said)- thanks again for making it all quite so enjoyable - Scior; Aug.2014 - Thank you for a fantastic week in your gorgeous apartment we all had an amazing time and loved Croatia.

Daniel was really helpful and we hired your boat for a day which was great fun.

We thought Tribunj was a lovely place with a great atmosphere in the evenings and with some fantastic restaurants - Tootill; June 2014 - The apartment was excellent - Stansfield; May 2014 - We had a great time in Tribunj and loved your apartment – so well equipped – although I have to admit the most I did was boil the kettle!!! Danny was a star and so helpful and a fund of knowledge. - Hetherington

Sue's apartment was perfect for our family holiday. The views are amazing and sitting on the balcony watching the boats go by and sun set was wonderful. Swimming in front was great fun too. It is in a great location with just a couple of minutes walk to the pretty little port of Tribunj with tavernas and a few shops. The apartment itself was clean, well equipped and homely. Having a parking space with the apartment was extremely useful. Hopefully we'll be back sometime!

An excellent choice.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was the perfect start to out visit, and the views from the balcony are truly breath-taking. We loved Tribunj with its relaxed atmosphere and excellent choice of restaurants and the boat made our visits to the nearby coves and islands perfect.

Fab views from a great apartment in a lovely little town.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean and comfortable and has really good views over a series of small islands and on out to sea. It faces south, and so gets the sun in the afternoon. The balcony does open up so that you can retreat into the shade during the hottest part of the day and still keep the view. Or, you can go swimming. Access to the sea is just outside the apartment and down some steps. The water, when we were there in early June was warm and clear. Just watch out for those pesky sea urchins!

There are all the local amenities that we needed (food shops, restaurants, bars and so forth) a few minutes walk away.

Daniel is the local, on the spot contact and he is very helpful for hiring bikes and boats. He can also arrange a variety of trips to the various attractions.

There are some pleasant walks to be had in the area. We walked in both directions from the flat and both were interesting and easy to do.

Overall, we had a really good time, the flat was great, there were no problems at all. The local amenities were all present and correct. We will definitely be returning. Keith and Liz

Holiday in Tribunj

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Sue’s apartment in July of this year and had a great holiday. We would certainly go back and recommend the apartment to others. The balcony is very private with no onlookers and the view is wonderful. The village is a very family friendly holiday town with loads of bars and restaurants just around the corner in the harbour, which is great for an evening stroll. No washing machine but again the laundrette is 2 minutes along the road and comes back dry and pressed. There are several boat trips which go from the village making it easy to see the sights and Daniel, the manager, has an office 3 minutes from the apartment. He is friendly and goes out of his way to help. Great guy. There are no sandy beaches but this is compensated by beautifully paved platforms from which you can dive into the sea. There is a large family friendly area for the children to swim and pedalos at the other end of the street. You could easily go without a car but if you do have a car Zadar, Split and many other places to visit are nearby. We did not have licence for a boat but were fortunate to hire a small on and cruise around the islands (A Must). After we were told that getting a licence is very easy in Croatia. We will definitely make the effort and take the test next time we go.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment with amazing sea views from the large balcony. It was clean and well maintained, with everything you need for a summer holiday.

It is just around the corner from the main village, so within easy walking was lots of restaurants, bars and supermarkets, but away from any noise except the sea.

Sue was very helpful, answering all my questions before we left and Daniel the manager who looks after you when you arrive was very attentive and knowledgeable of the local area.

Would highly recommended.

Owner's Response: I'm delighted that the family enjoyed the holiday so much. We look forward to welcoming you to the village again perhaps because people sometimes miss that view in the throes of an English winter and look forward to the peace and tranquillity offered by this magical and relatively unknown part of Croatia

The marina at Vodice hires out sailing and motor boats with or without skipper and there is plenty of opportunity for diving/snorkeling within the area.

Further Details:

The village has a bank with cash machine, post office, internet cafes and excellent tourist agency as well as a variety of bars and restaurants. During the main season there is a daily market in the square for fruit, vegetables and fish and there are two small supermarkets and other shops and art gallery. Vodice, a larger centre, has more nightlife and lies about 3km from Tribunj around the coast. The tourist agency will arrange tours, hire of cars, bikes and scooters and generally offer an all round service to visitors with excellent spoken English. A motor boat is available for hire with the apartment by the day, half day or the week. It is advisable to book this when you book the apartment and we can then provide further information.
